White House National Security Adviser Jack Sullivan added that resuming relationships with Saudi Arabia would also involve adjustments to US support for security for Saudi Arabia. It’s not an easy task, and President Joe Biden is examining it on his own.
Concerning the timeline of this process, The National Security Adviser confirmed that president Joe Biden is working on the details. The Adviser will also meet with the opposition so that the entire process doesn’t take some time.
Re-examining the relationship with Saudi Arabia, OPEC announced production cuts last week, despite US protests. Saudi Arabia also supported Russia in reducing oil production.
US Presidency Joe Biden became angry with Saudi Arabia for supporting Russia and pledged to impose serious penalties on Saudi Arabia. In addition, US senator and chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Bob Menendez, is calling for the end of arms sales for Saudi Arabia.
The US believes that the decision of OPEC to reduce oil production is a blunder against its Western plan to block Russian oil exports as a response to the declaration of war against Ukraine.
America’s displeasure over Saudi Arabia can be gauged from when CNN asked National Security Advisor Jack Sullivan if US President Joe Biden would invite the Saudi crown prince to the G20 Summit in Malaysia in the coming month. In response to a question about whether he would meet with Muhammad bin Salman, he said there was no plan.
